Catalogue Note

This finely preserved sheet, executed, predominantly, in black ink and gray wash depicts a sweeping landscape with two figures carrying baskets, while a third smokes his pipe. To the left of the composition a carriage makes its way down a rutted path towards what appears to be a tavern, outside of which other travelers and their horses, are being fed and watered (see also lot 104).
